Stut tgart, Georg Thieme Verlag, 1974. p. 81-85The activities of Pro Familia, the West German Society for Sexual Co unseling and Family Planning, are described. The Society participates in the activities of many international organizations of medical and social interest as a member of the International Planned Parenthood Federation. In Germany, Pro Familia offers courses for physicians, counselors and day people, and a variety of educational progrmas for all ages. Physicians working with Pro Familia receive a 5-day training course, and are encouraged to complete deficient aspects of their education in sexuality, family planning, and reproduction. The Society maintains 45 centers and several mobile units to carry programs to underprivileged neighborhoods. The age of clients has declined steadily from a minimum of 16 5 years ago to 13-14 years now; 12-year-olds are sometimes seen. Help is sought not only in questions of fertility and contraception, but also in marital, sexual, and emotional problems of all types.
